    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 32. ORIGINAL SIN

    And I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judg­ment-wickedness was there, in the place of justice- wickedness was there. I thought in my heart, “God will bring to judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time for every deed.” Ecclesiastes 3:16-17 […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 34. UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

    “All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. Who knows if the spirit of man rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?” So I saw that there is nothing better for a man than to enjoy his work, because that is […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 36. THE RARE JEWEL OF CONTENTMENT

    And I saw that all labor and all achievement spring from man’s envy of his neighbor. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. The fool folds his hands and ruins himself. Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 4:4-6   Over three hundred years […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 12. THE VIEW FROM THE PENTHOUSE

    12. The View From the Penthouse   I became greater by far than anyone in Jerusalem before me. In all this my wisdom stayed with me.   Ecclesiastes 2:9   Here is his story, briefly told: At age six, his mother threw his birthday cake off the porch. He played the French Horn at age […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 13. KING FOR A DAY

    13. King for a Day   I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refused my heart no pleasure. My heart took delight in all my work, and this was the reward for all my labor. Ecclesiastes 2:10   Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be king for a day? Suppose […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 15. THE TURTLE ON THE FENCE POST

    15. The Turtle on the Fence post   Then I turned my thoughts to consider wisdom, and also madness and folly. What more can the king’s successor do than what has already been done? Ecclesiastes 2:12   I’m sure Solomon felt pressure from both sides on the issue of kingly succession. On the one hand […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 17. TEMPORARY ADVANTAGES

    17. Temporary Advantages   Then I thought in my heart, “The fate of the fool will over­take me also. What then do I gain by being wise?” I said in my heart, “This too is meaningless.” For the wise man, like the fool, will not be long remembered; in days to come both will be […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 19. PASSING THE BATON

    19. Passing the Baton   I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. And who knows whether he will be a wise man or a fool? Yet he will have control over all the work into which I have […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 22. ARE YOU ON GOD’S SIDE?

    22. Are You On God’s Side?   To the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gather­ing and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 2:26   […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 24. TIMES AND SEASONS

    24. Times and Seasons   A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build. Ecclesiastes 3:2-3   The meaning of the above verses is transparent: In […]
